Rayfish Footwear is a hi-tech startup that offered personalized sneakers crafted from genetically modified stingray leather.
The launch of the company website http://www.rayfish.com catalyzed a debate on emerging biotechnologies and the products it may bring us. It also questioned our consumptive relationship with animals and products in general.
While such discussions often remain abstract, we aimed to make them tangible in a concrete product you can love or hate.
The Rise & Fall of Rayfish Footwear is a project by Koert van Mensvoort, Ton Meijdam and Floris Kaayk. Realized with Support of Dutch Film Fund, Media Fund, Stichting Doen, Mondriaan Fund. Copyright 2012-2013 Next Nature Network
